    Looked like it could/should have been a penalty in real time, but in the slo-mo replay you can see Barnes is already going over before there is any contact.

    Poor from Alex though. Got his positioning all wrong there.

    we are surely going to pay the price for a shambles of a transfer window at some point now

    Indeed. Brilliant refereeing

    If the ref sees that penalty appeal again at half time he’ll try and make amends second half I reckon

    The only reason I can think that the ref didn't give it is that Barnes pokes the ball right and then moves left to ensure he makes contact with the goalkeeper. I still think it's a penalty but maybe if Barnes had moved in the same direction as the ball the outcome would have been different. Clutching at straws but hey ho

    Only saw the replay of the ‘penalty’ incident, looks like a dive to me.

    Agreed. he was not in control of the ball, hit the ground badly with trailing foot and stumbled into Alex. who was in the wrong place.
    not a penalty. not a dive either.

    If he'd actually made an effort to jump over the keeper he'd have got the pen. McCarthy is entitled to dive for the ball.

    Having initially thought it was a stonewall pen, I'm now thinking that Barnes engineered it rather than it being a simple case of McCarthy bringing him down. Could well be the right decision in hindsight

    got to love fan bias in saying that was not a penalty for Burnely.

    Probably because we have a squad of players who aren't very good. Despite the majority of fans that seem to think "With the players we've got, we should be midtable". Even Hoj isn't a particularly good player, he's just got a brilliant attitude which makes up for his technical short comings.

    I saw critical thinking based on evidence. If it was bias, they never would have said it was a penalty in the first place.

    Analysing it a bit more = fan bias ?

    If you say so squire....

    FWIW, I still think it was a penalty, on balance, but I can see why the ref didn't give it

    personally, I think JwP not being in the middle is taking some quality away from us.

    lots of huff and puff but have defended well enough and had clear luck from the ref (again)

  30. Default

    So we are back to a team with no Ings, Bertrand, Lemina and Hojberg, looking short on quality again.

    half time 0-0
    find myself yawning at times watching the stream, dull game really from both!

    oh well

    JWP at rwb seems to be an okay spot if you really want him involved, but without Hojbjerg and Lemina Slatteryis the best option who tries to avoid being any part of the game. Better not get the ball and better not get involved in any duels. Romeu havin to run the dem-show on his own...

    Agreed average players with a few poor ones in the mix but the reality is we are going to need to beat the likes of Burnley with the players we have somehow, ings was the one bright spark & he will be out for some time again most probably

    Burnley fans are the new Stoke fans. Horrible whinging bunch.

  35. #135

    On the basis of 90 minutes against Palace and 45 against Burnley, the belief that we're already too good to go down under RH looks misguided.

    We already looked toothless with Ings on the pitch, and appear to have no idea how to create openings without the assistance of an opposition mistake.

    Burnley make Stoke look like Barca.

    To be fair, he IS special. His education proves it.

    Not looking good. What was Ings injury? He walked off by himself. Did they give any report?

    Love the Burnley players freaking out on every ref call now. They are going to lose control.

    Barnes should have been sent off. Yellow for the blatant dive, another for dissent.

    Not if the ref decides to 'level' things up.

    Did Ings even bother to try to run his knock off?

    My guess would be a reoccurrence of his recent hamstring injury. Perhaps it just felt tight and he came off as a precaution

    The fact the referee didn't give him a second booking makes me think he instantly regretted the decision....

    Played very well for first 20 and ings should have scored when put straight through.
    Got lucky on penalty. Barnes is theatrical but McCarthy doesn’t get ball and his leg would have tripped Barnes.
    Ings injury may be more than a knock, he was ignoring the clapping during his lap of the touch line which maybe suggests deflation/worry on his part. Still think we’ve got other options in that position if need be.
    Jwp has done fine at wingback.
    Slatery has looked bright apart from his early (was it a slip) or a foul on their defender.
